Comments: Several very large holds felt hollow and poorly attached--I wouldn't recommend climbing this until someone cleans it up quite a bit.

Comments: As of October 2013, 4th bolt (I think) had a big chalked X on it, as well as several large holds around it. Unclear if the rock the bolt is in is actually bad, but seems likely.

Comments: As of November '13, one of the bolts up high (4th or 5th?--there was at least one more on the steep part after it) was about an inch out of the hole. I hand-tightened, but it still seems pretty sketchy.

Comments: Second pitch: it's very good, a little harder than the first pitch. Bring a #4 C4 and bump it or bring two of them and you'll be fine (also several 3s, I believe). Mostly laybacking in the beginning, with multiple cracks to choose from at times.
